  2. 4 19 17 update I appreciate that so many people have liked this review and or commented on it, whether we agree or not Please know that I will not be interacting with any comments as I remember almost nothing about this novel other than the repulsion I felt toward it I cannot add anything worthwhile to a discussion or engage in any intelligent discourse unless I read it again which I think we all know I am not going to do That being said, anyone using the comments section to mak...

  3. While reading The Corrections I really understood the meaning of schadenfreude because I despised almost every character in this book so much that themiserable their lives got, theenjoyment I took from it And when a shotgun was introduced late in the novel, I read the rest of it with my fingers crossed while muttering Please please please please please please in the hope that at least one of those pitiful shits would end up taking a load of buckshot to the face.The Lambert s While reading The Corrections I really understood the meaning of schadenfreude because I despised almost every character in this book so much that themiserable their lives got, theenjoyment I took from it And when a shotgun was introduced late in the novel, I read the rest of it with my fingers crossed while muttering Please please please please please please in the hope that at least one of those pitiful shits would end up taking a load of buckshot to the face.The Lambert s are a Midwestern family, and while the grown children have all moved to Philadelphia and New York, the parents have remained in St Jude The father, Alfred, was a workaholic middle manager for a railroad and he s the kind of joyless repressed bastard that considered all pleasures frivolous and taking a coffee ...

  5. My first Franzen.Really I don t even know how to start this review I could begin, I suppose, by discussing the pure perfection of his writing It is REALLY DAMN GOOD If I could break reviews down into little sections, he d get 10 stars for his style technique Excellent.On the other hand, I can t give this a full 5 stars Or can I Yeah, it was well written The depth of the characters and the storyline maybe just a hair short of phenomenal YetWhy do I bother with fiction I feel guilty My first Franzen.Really I don t even know how to start this review I could begin, I suppose, by discussing the pure perfection of his writing It is REALLY DAMN GOOD If I could break reviews down into little sections, he d get 10 stars for his style technique Excellent.On the other hand, I can t give this a full 5 stars Or can I Yeah, it was well written The depth of the characters and the storyline maybe just a hair short...

  6. JONATHAN FRANZEN S TOP TEN RULES FOR WRITERS as given to The Guardian on 20 Feb 2010 with additional commenty comments by me 1 The reader is a friend, not an adversary, not a spectator.Hmm, well, maybe I can t think Hugh Selby had very friendly thoughts when he wrote his brilliant Last Exit to Brooklyn, it reads like he wants to shove all of us into a landfill site and have done with the human race But quite often that s a good attitude for a writer to have Some books you walk around and p JONATHAN FRANZEN S TOP TEN RULES FOR WRITERS as given to The Guardian on 20 Feb 2010 with additional commenty comments by me 1 The reader is a friend, not an adversary, not a spectator.Hmm, well, maybe I can t think Hugh Selby had very friendly thoughts when he wrote his brilliant Last Exit to Brooklyn, it reads like he wants to shove all of us into a landfill site and have done with the human race But quite often that s a good attitude for a writer to have Some books you walk around and poke sticks at, they re designed that way some books you take your machete and hack into the meat and the filth and the hell with any bystanders getting splattered, they shouldn t be bystanding so close if their fine suits mean that much to them Some books you can have round for tea with mama So I dis...

  7. Conrad told me that Jonathan Franzen has been quoted as saying he deliberately rips off influential late century American authors such as Pynchon, DeLillo and Roth, but tries to make the prose less difficult,easily consumed.Leaving aside for a moment the irony of that statement in light of his outrage over the Oprah thing, that is retarded Those authors are not great because their writing is accessible when the complexity is removed.It was when one of the main characters in The Correction Conrad told me that Jonathan Franzen has been quoted as saying he deliberately rips off influential late century American authors such as Pynchon, DeLillo and Roth, but tries to make the prose less difficult,easily consumed.Leaving aside for a moment the irony of that statement in light of his outrage over the Oprah thing, that is retarded Those authors are not great because their writing is accessible when the complexity is removed.It was when one of the main cha...

  8. An open letter to my former copy of The Corrections First I want to tell you that it isn t you, it s me People and books grow apart just like people and people grow apart I remember years ago when I read you that there were certain things about you that I really liked but the truth is, I just wasn t really that into you Yeah, that little stunt with Oprah was pretty cute, and I recall we had a laugh, but I m just at that point in my life where I need to make space for new experiences open An open letter to my former copy of The Corrections First I want to tell you that it isn t you, it s me People and books grow apart just like people and people grow apart I remember years ago when I read you that there were certain things about you that I really liked but the truth is, I just wasn t really that into you Yeah, that little stunt with Oprah was pretty cute, and I recall we had a laugh, but I m just at that point in my life where I need to make space for new experiences open myself up to what other potentials are out there And you re kinda crowding me a bit.I know you asked me Where did it all go wrong I could hear your muffled whine from the trunk as I drove you with the other books to Goodwill At first, I wished that I had put you at the bottom of the bag beneath the crushing weight of the duplicate copy of Shaw s works and the crap translation of Les Miserables But that s just being petty I ll answer your question honestly Some books, like people, have a charact...

  9. Franzen s writing is impeccable Not only does his understanding of complex, familial relationships fascinate me, but his ability to capture these characters all five of them, I might add with such depthI think that is what really drew me in as a reader I mean, these are people who are so flawed emotionally and so utterly selfish inherently, and yet each of them has this capacity for loving one another even while recognizing their inability to stand each other forthan five minutes at a Franzen s writing is impeccable Not only does his understanding of complex, familial relationships fascinate me, but his ability to capture these characters all five of them, I might add with such depthI think that is what really drew me in as a reader I mean, these are people who are so flawed emotionally and so utterly selfish inherently, and yet each of them has this capacity for loving one another even while recognizing their inability to stand each other forthan five minutes at a time in a sense they arehuman than most humans And Franzen knows how to write a sentence, my God All this book did was remind me why I love to read.Honestly, I try to give five stars sparingly, but this one I fully endorse I think what makes it better than Freedom is that I walked away from this with a knot in my stomach I really felt something here Seven year old Chip being left alone at the dinner table until it was late enough for him to fall asleep on his plac...

  10. I love this novel as much for what it turned out that it wasn t as for what it actually was The opening vignette was a deep dive into the subterranean conflicts of a middle class home in Middle America We re immediately focused on the agony and resentment of the emasculated American male wrought by decades of marriage to a dutiful wife who dutifully domesticates the family and becomes an expert in polishing the fa ade In our initial meeting, the retired Alfred has dug himself such a deep tren I love this novel as much for what it turned out that it wasn t as for what it actually was The opening vignette was a deep dive into the subterranean conflicts of a mi...
